Keris Jawa Luk 11 Sabuk Inten 0523.

Keris Jawa Luk 11 Sabuk Inten 0523 A very good example of a keris from the central Javanese regions of Surakarta. Fittings in the ladrangan forms, with the finely carved hilt made from hard redwoods, and the sheath made from a single piece of woods without any joints or seiras.

Long blade with 11 waves or luks, and well executed base features or perabots, having an overall shape or dapor called sabuk inten in Javanese.

Pamor patterns are forged in the mlumah technique of the wos utah or scattered rice variations, which is said to enhance the owner's material well being.

Condition:
Very good condition.

Age:  Krises are traditionally made without any date stampings or engravings of the makers' name. Although a kris smith or "empu" has his own styles configured together with the dapor and especially the ganjar (cross piece). Obvious age wear and tear, usage, familiarity with forms, motifs and designs, origin and history, mediums and materials used are our guidelines in determining an approximate age. This particular piece, from our experience and knowledge, should go back to the middle to late 17th century blade, with 19th century fittings.

Length of blade: 13".   Overall length: 18.5".

Price:- Singapore SGD$380 excluding shipping.
